Instant Win games like Monster Wins are a great way to enjoy the beauty of slots with the quickfire nature of winning. Instantly. But what makes these games even better is when they’re more intuitive, unique and, of course, have generous payouts. Which is exactly what you get on Fruit Blast, from Skillz Gaming via Microgaming.

Pros & Cons

  • Fun, mobile type game.
  • Cute graphics.
  • Nice extras such as achievements and levelling up.
  • Payouts could be bigger.
  • If you don’t like Candy Crush this might not be your cup of tea.
  • It’s not a typical game – but don’t let that put you off

How to Play

There are bushels of fruity slots to enjoy, each of them unique in its nature. Slots like Fruity 3×3 are perfect examples of how to utilise a fruity theme to its best. But Fruit Blast goes in a different direction, appearing more like a mobile game than a slot. Which is what makes it so fun! There are no big ‘play’ or ‘spin’ buttons but instead if you’ve heard of that famous game Candy Crush then this will breathe an air of familiarity. Onscreen you’ll see a five by five grid, filled with various fruit symbols. To the top is a bartender, because you’re at a juice bar after all. On the right of the screen you can set the bet and the aim of the game is to match clusters of symbols. Do that and you’ll then see the corresponding meter on the left of the screen fill up. Do that, advance in the game, gain more rewards and earn something better than fruit juice.

Symbols

As this isn’t like a conventional fruit-themed online slot, you’d think the symbols might not be that familiar. But that’s not the case. Sure, they’re more like little icons you expect on a mobile game like this but Cherries, Grapes, Lemons, Watermelons and Pineapples are iconic symbols on retro slots so it’s a nice touch that they appear here too. There are no Wilds but there are Jackpot and Bonus icons which can help pay out
